EnVision OKC is a multi-pronged community engagement campaign specifically designed for our congregation with the goal of identifying who we are, naming our strengths, recognizing our opportunities, and visualizing our hopes for our shared future.

One main pillar of EnVision OKC are four large community conversations. Participate in as many or as few as you wish – each will be slightly different, though there is no need to attend more than one:a. Sun, Jan 13, 10am-noon: Open Spaceb. Tues, Feb 12, 7-9pm: Open Spacec. Sun, Feb 24, noon-2pm: World Caféd. Mon, Mar 11, 7-9pm: World Café
All Community Conversations will be facilitated engagements, but the two formats present different designs, and have different intentions.
The Open Space concept provides a format where participants create and manage the agenda by advancing conversation topics that matter to them. Participants will have the chance to suggest the topics they wish to discuss, and rotate among conversations as they wish, in the order they wish, and to the extent that they wish.
The World Café concept, by contrast, offers a way for small groups of people to have focused and deep conversations about pre-determined topics. Participants will have the chance to rotate around a variety of tables, each of which is dedicated to a pre-determined question, for a set period of time.
While formal RSVPs are not required for participation, knowing a headcount for each Conversation helps us plan ahead to ensure a high quality program.
